very well and was somewhat awkward. remember when he went to michigan and said trees were the right to heighth. the actual quote was a love this state. it seems right that the trees are the right height. [laughter] away from here i find no trees in that please. no trees as such a perfect height as these. can never be at ease with trees that grow higher than one's knees or too high to splinter in the breeze. wisconsin can have their bragging rights on cheese and colorado is where you take your skis and connecticut as lyme disease. [laughter] and another visa my prepared to sneeze but here we have the perfect height of trees. [applause] according to that theory romney was not a good candidate they should have been nominated somebody else. also a theory there were demographically behind and did not understand the people they were appealing to was no longer in the majority i tried to help them out when they were looking for a vice presidential candidate. i did a phone call to the cuisine diversity if engine doll or haley were put on the ticket republicans could entice voters who would l

didn't match. in michigan, if you don't have photo i.d., you still should be able to vote if you sign an david -- affidavit attesting you're the person. that's not an option that is often given to the vote, and even if the voter asks for it, there's resistance. so we had a number of problems with that. virginia there was confusion with people around i.d. because you have a new law that went into effect where you had multiple forms of i.d. we got reports of people were being told they had to show a photo i.d. so, in texas, during early vote there was confusion about the i.d. requirement. didn't get as much of that on election day in texas. we didn't hear as many reports in south carolina to be hospital about been cows about i.d.es that we thought we would. so it was mixed. it affect the entire progression because it created confusion about what was required to vote and what wasn't. that was definitely an impact we saw. >> i think we might not agree on this one but maybe. >> yeah. i guess at least from the voter i.d. stuff, anything we can do to make sure to minimize voter fraud is bett

direction? mr. durbin: in response to the senator from michigan, the republican senate leader, senator mcconnell, has such a strong appetite for the filibuster that we have seen 386 or 387 filibusters in the last six years, and now he has decided another good idea is to propose a bill and then filibuster your own bill. i do believe that's history in the making, but that's why this appetite for the filibuster in the senate has to change. what an abuse that we can't have a majority vote on something the republicans proposed and the democrats were prepared to vote for. this would have been a true bipartisan measure. good news, maybe lead the news across america. it really is unfortunate. mr. schumer: would the minority leader yield? mr. reid: madam president? i have some business here. you will get the floor right back. madam president, i now move to proceed to calendar number 554, s. 3637. the presiding officer: the clerk will report the motion. the clerk: motion to proceed to the consideration of calendar number 554, s. 3637, a bill to temporarily extend the transaction account guarantee p

, it's a large manufacturing state. we've got a big obstacle in the way with lake michigan to get product to the east coast. so i recognize there's need for investment. but i often hear from my constituents the concern of the government, of the federal government picking regions of the country to win and lose in the economic battles that take place between states. in other words, if we invest a lot of money in the northeast quarter's federal taxpayer or a lot of money in california, the fax payer in -- taxpayer in wisconsin is wondering are we just making those states more competitive to compete against wisconsin manufacturing? could you talk a little bit about how the whole thing plays together and what the answer should be? >> first of all, i know you know this, but you all were in the ball game. >> yeah. i'm not making the statement on -- >> i know you're not. i'm saying if you feel your state is disadvantaged, it's not because of us. we wanted to make investments, we were ready to make investments. >> let's take it from montana. let's just take it from a different region becau

him to in michigan, senator inouye made his two lifelong friends, one senator bob dole, who as we know, became majority leader here in the senate and the republican nominee for president of the united states. and his other lifetime friend is the late senator phil hart, who was known as the conscience of the senate and the hart building, the massive senate office building, is named after him. asked by his son why after being classified as an enemy alien he and the members of the 442nd fought so heroically, senator inouye said in his usual, calm man, for the children. and for the children there could be no finer role model than senator dan inouye. he was a recipient of the medal of honor, a congressional gold medal, the highest honor can bestow. he served the distinguished service cross, a bronze star for valor and, of course, a purple heart. dan inouye showed the same dedication in congress he displayed on if battlefield. i want to take just a little bit here, mr. president, and talk about a meeting that i had, i mentioned it very previously last night but it was ten days ago. i knew se

's no actual scoring based on, upon race. and, indeed, if they did that, they might run afoul of the michigan problem of having special goals or quotas or assigned numbers to it which creates another kind of irony. it is possible that ms. fisher might have been admitted in a summer program under which texas admits a number of people who are not admitted in the regular program. it's not clear to me, and maybe it is to anybody else, whether she actually tried to get into that program. in any event, she was not admitted there. and so one of the arguments that is being made is it's impossible to reconstruct what would have happened and that maybe this is a lawsuit which could prevent the university of texas from going forward with its program in the future. the problem from ms. fisher's perspective is she has already completed the university. this is not a class action, and she has not sought an injunction against the future use of the program pause she would have no -- because she would have no standing and not be entitled to ask for it. the only thing she is seeking at this time is monetary dam

. in michigan, and if you have photo id, you still should be able to vote just on affidavit. i think jocelyn can attest that is not an option that is often given to the voters even if a voter asks for. there is resistance. so we had a number of problems with that. virginia, there was confusion because you're a new law that went into the work of multiple forms of id. we did get reports of people that were being told they have to show a photo id. in texas during early vote that was confusion about the id requirement. we didn't have as many reports and south carolina about confusion. so it was mixed but it wasn't just states that had a debate about it but it affected this entire process because it greatest confusion about what was required to vote and what wasn't. that was an impact we saw. >> we might not agree on this one. i guess a lease on a voter id stuff, anything that we can do to make sure they minimize voter fraud, that being said i think all, we'll have and the total stories about it being back on it being good, it not being affected i would love to see a study offer this election telling
